Hollow core planks are precast, pre-stressed concrete elements that are generally used for flooring.
The concrete hollow core slabs have between four and six longitudinal cores running through them, the primary purpose of the cores being to decrease the weight, and material within the floor, yet maintain maximal strength.
Advantages are as follows:
Flexible in design
Light weight structure
Long span, up to 17m
Precast Beams & Columns.
Our product thickness is designed as 75mm, 95mm, or 115mm prestressed slabs and used on site with a 50mm reinforced topping screed in an unpropped construction.
Precast, hollow core, concrete beams and columns advantages:
No Propping to beams
No need for expensive on-site formwork
Flexibility with design as various cross sections are available
Precast Wall Panels.
Precast concrete wall panels have become a standard building component in Melbourne with a large number of precasters servicing the market.

The new Precast Design Guide is now available for download
Providing detailed design guidelines for the design of precast buildings, this new book by Barry Crisp is an excellent resource for architects and engineers designing precast solutions.
This Design Guide is intended to fill this knowledge gap by providing a detailed review of this subject and thereby promoting a greater awareness and understanding of how precast concrete buildings are constructed. It will concentrate on discussing the concepts of precast concrete buildings but will refer to referenced documents for the detailed design. It has been written particularly for those already familiar with this form of construction but do not have the detailed knowledge of the detailing required to plan and design a complete precast concrete building.
